Nothing really raises my self esteem, especially not comments from family or friends because they just say these things to cheer you up without necessarily meaning it.

Friends sometimes say to me you are smart, you are funny, you are strong but it's all wrong because I wouldn't be in this situation if I was what they say I am.

In the end the only thing I do is bring myself down, every day again and again. I've been doing this since high school.By now nothing raises my self esteem anymore. Is it justified? Perhaps, perhaps not but in my mind I'm nothing but a burden and nothing will convince me something else.
